Game 3: That's More Like It

1-2

To everyone that was saying 0-7? Eat it. The Tigers played like a team is supposed to in beating the Jays today. I know...it looked weird to me, too. Miguel Cabrera looks awesome so far and Brandon Inge looks like the complete, total opposite of what Brandon Inge normally looks like. Even the bullpen looked great today. Great job all around.

THE BAD
-Polonco has struck out in all three games so far. Something's not right with him. He's got the day off tomorrow.

-Double D. Another bad sweater.

-The Good Luck Joes. I'm getting ice cream headache from all the ways I want to see these guys die all rushing into my head at the same time.

THE GOOD
-Cabrera. Two more homers today. The guy's a machine.

-Inge. Just for a second...can you imagine a Tigers team where Brandon Inge hits, say, .270 with 28 homers and 90 RBI's? That would be something, eh? Well, three dingers in three games for the Special Little Guy...not bad. Just don't try to be Babe Ruth, kid. You're still in there for your defense. Keep it up.

-Zach Miner. 5 2/3 innings, 1 ER, 6 hits, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts. Not great, but it got the job done. Especially not bad for the guy that wasn't good enough to make the rotation.

-The BULLPEN! 3 1/3 scoreless. Even Rodney got a 1-2-3 inning. Most importantly, Ryan Perry made his MLB debut going a 1-2-3 eighth getting a strikeout. Too bad he didn't get the chance last night instead of leaving Lyon out there to die.

Next: Porcello makes his debut at 12:30 tomorrow. Let's go for .500!
